How did the underdog surge to the top to win this surprising victory? The answer is easy. He smothered the Lieutenant Governor with a frightening accusation that was repeated time and time again and it had a measurable affect on that small group of the electorate that chose to vote that day. What did Cruz say about Dewhurst? He repeatedly called him a “MODERATE!”
It wasn’t too long ago when being called a moderate was a modest compliment, but this election was a good example of why this country is locked in a blistering, unproductive political stalemate. There is no place for the moderates in the electoral process. We are truly in trouble – deep trouble.
